Senegal strives to get medical care to all
If the outbreak of Ebola in West Africa has exposed anything, it is the poor health facilities often stagnated due to poor governance in the region.
However, in Senegal the government is going the extra mile to improve its innoculation programme for children to reduce the number of fatalities from preventable diseases.
Among the challenges is the design of the vaccination coolers which, although specifically made for the task, are not suitable for travel accross the irregular terrain, according to some nurses.
